This was our third extended visit to Lucignano, but first to Casa Pei. And simply put, I look forward to returning and recommend this place without reservation.
This B&B was our first. And, it's a bit (a lot) like staying with your parents. Dino and his wife are warm, friendly, and welcoming people. Every morning at breakfast they asked about our plans for the day. Then, in a few minutes, we were given a map with recommendations of where to park and things to be sure to see. Very, very helpful. Dino even helped with our bags because we arrived so late. Not at all expected, but much, much, appreciated.
The morning meals were spectacular. It was typical European - breads, cheeses, meats, and fruits. We were always given more than we should eat and I even ate more than I should more than once because it was so good (and I didn't want to be wasteful).
The room was great and most important, very, very clean. The king bed was comfortable. There was ample space so we never felt cramped or crowded. Each day the room was made up (which I didn't expect, but certainly appreciated). We also had a private balcony with a great view of the surrounding countryside.
In summary, I can't think of a better place to stay in the area, let alone Lucignano. Warm, friendly, and helpful hosts. A clean and comfortable room. And, delicious food to start each day. You can't ask for more and won't need to when staying at Casa Pei!
